The concert ukulele is the middle of the three common ukulele sizes, soprano, concert and tenor. These three sizes are all tuned to the same notes (GCEA) but are 21, 24 and 26 inches long respectively. The smaller soprano size is super portable, and has the stereotypical bright, snappy ukulele tone. The larger tenor has a deeper, richer tone with more volume thanks to its larger body and also leaves more room for adult players with large hands to fret the chords properly. Concert is a happy middle ground between tone, portability and squished-ness vs big stretches for your hands and is consequently the most popular size of ukulele we sell.
These stunning ebony concert ukuleles are made by Aiersi, a reliable Chinese manufacturer who hand finish all their instruments to a very high standard. The ebony used in their construction has been hand selected for attractive grain and a perfect tone. This gives them a very clear sound, loud and bright but balanced with plenty of sustain. The wood’s beautiful striped grain (a little different in every uke, but always a joy to behold!) is set off by an attractive abalone rosette and binding and the fretboard is inlaid with attractive pearloid markers. If you look carefully at the bridge, you will notice that the saddle has been hand-shaped for each individual string. This is an extremely rare feature for an affordable ukulele and is designed to give you perfect intonation all the way up the fretboard.
These outstanding ebony ukuleles are also supplied with a free case for portability and to protect them from bumps and scratches. If you would like to bundle your ukulele with a tuner, capo, plectrums etc then we would be happy to help and we can also offer ukulele lesson via Zoom and lesson gift certificates.
